At IFMA Cologne, the ExtraEnergy Special Show included a large Test Track as well as batteries, testing equipment, fuel cell vehicles and all electric bicycles that have been tested by ExtraEnergy since 1995. View photos here!
At IFMA Cologne from September 15-18, the spacious ExtraEnergy Special Show in Hall 14.2 was the heart of the LEV section once again. On the TEST IT Track, visitors enjoyed test riding the latest models of Antec (NL), B2 Products (B), Biketec (CH), BinBike (B), BionX (CA), Citec (D), Heinzmann (D), Helkama (FL), Sachs (D), Schachner (A), Shanghai Forever (CN), Sparta (NL), and Swizzbee (CH).
Next to the TEST IT Parcours the Energy Storage Exhibition displayed battery and fuel cell technologies, electrical components, and hydrogen vehicles. The ExtraEnergy BatteryTest and all test batteries were part of this exhibition. The largest exhibit, built directly into a shipping container, was the laboratory for the battery safety tests.
The Info Desk was a popular meeting point for people interested in LEVs. Here, the ExtraEnergy Team presented their new address directory at www.ExtraEnergy.org and dealers enter their data right at the spot.
The Test Exhibition probably counted more than 50 bikes. All pedelecs and e-bikes that have been tested by ExtraEnergy since 1996 were on display together with their test results. All those historic vehicles showed, how much progress has been achieved in the LEV industry within the last 10 years.
